Race in America has always been an issue and dealing with it has never had any easy answers. It’s human nature to live in groups that are all alike, call it tribal or whatever you want but it’s natural. An individuals personal thoughts on race are seen through different prisms depending upon life experiences. Tribe A, B, C, and D, all see race as a different thing dependent on how it has effected them personally. Good, bad, or indifferent, their judgments should be derived from personal experience….period.
Unfortunately because different races have been given preferred minority status they have also been given preferred grievance platforms. Government stepped in and mandated the varying tribes get along or else. It’s no longer the individuals opinion that matters, it’s what the individual has been told to believe that matters. That’s a huge deal.
Colin Kaeprnick was born in Wisconsin, his African-American father ran out on his white mother before Colin was born. Kaepernick was put up for adoption and was adopted by a white couple with two children of their own. His life was changed from an illegitimate mixed race child with a bleak future to a life of opportunity.
Fast forward to Kaepernicks 2016 decision to kneel during the national anthem. He said that he was doing it because of oppression of his people. Who are his people? He has a college degree and making millions playing for the NFL because a white family adopted him, put him through school, was given a scholarship by a white college coach, drafted in the NFL by a white team owner and white head coach. Who are his people again?
The rest of the story is well documented but how did we get here? Was it Trumps non scripted statement? Trump said nothing about race, nothing about the NFL itself, he opined that it would be great if an owner stood up and fired the “sons a bitches” kneeling during the anthem, he was talking about a few individuals, not league wide. But see that doesn’t matter, the race industry has it’s opportunity, Trump haters smell blood and liberals are following the Alinsky play book, divide the country by race.
Go back to the government dictating individual thought on race. Trump is now a racist because that’s what’s been mandated. Race became a cottage industry, then became big business, now thousands of groups make their living off preferred minority status. That’s how we got here. Kaepernick is a product of the race industry, he’s a useful idiot that’s been told to believe he and his “people” are oppressed, it’s not because of his personal experience, it’s what’s been mandated.
The division of America is almost complete, not because of Trump, not because white people are racist, it’s due to the race industry, the Black Caucus, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Black Panthers, the Democratic Party, and every other group that has something to gain whether that be money or votes.
That’s how we got here and it’s not going to end well.This entry was posted in Politics, Uncategorized and tagged hillary, lefties, Liberal, lies, obama by jeffli6 with 10 comments
